Colonial Quills

I've been eagerly waiting to share with you about a new website devoted to promoting Colonial American fiction...

... where you'll find:

Fiction Sampler 
(spotlighting a novel and author)

In Ye Olden Days 
(historical facts and trivia about life in Colonial America)

Tools of the Trade 
(writing and research tips, particularly for 18th century fiction)

Colonial Recipes

Colonial Quills will feature fiction and historical topics relevant through 1800 and perhaps a little beyond, including the Revolutionary War and the early Federal Period, which is very good since I'm a contributor and so far I've written novels set in the mid 1780s to the 1790s, just a wee bit after the Colonial period.

Come visit us at Colonial Quills, and say hello to my fellow contributors:

Carrie Fancett Pagels
Laura Frantz (The Frontiersman's Daughter, Courting Morrow Little)
Carla Gade
Laurie Alice Eakes (Lady in the Mist)
Rita Gerlach (Surrender the Wind)
Louise M. Gouge (The Captain's Lady)
J. M. Hochstetler (Daughter of Liberty, Native Son)
Pat Iacuzzi
Lynn Squire
Jennifer Hudson Taylor
Gina Welborn
Roseanna White (Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland)
